    1. The women who are breaking into the boardroom

      News from the Professional Boards Forum that almost 100 women were made directors of the UK's top businesses last year suggested that a Government-commissioned report by former trade minister Lord Davies had been taken seriously by the City.

      The recent news that struggling imaging company Eastman Kodak lost three outside directors in a single week prompted me to consider the extent to which non-executive directors flee their companies in times of trouble and why.

    5. So What About the Board?

      It’s now a year since Michael Porter famously threw down his gauntlet by announcing from on high that all value needed to be Shared Value. That, as I wrote last year, we are moving into the Third Age of corporate-social relations.
